SIX people have been taken to hospital after three more accidents on Suffolk roads – including another one on the notorious A140.

Two cars were involved in a collision just after 4pm yesterday on the A140 near the Thrandeston turn. Two people were taken to the Norwich and Norfolk Hospital, but their injuries were not thought to be serious.

A police spokesman said the southbound carriageway was closed and traffic diverted after the accident.

About ten minutes later two lorries were involved in a collision on the B1117 at Thornham Parva, near Eye, just off the A140.

A 32-year-old man was airlifted to the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital with suspected spinal injuries. Two other people were taken to Ipswich Hospital with spinal and shoulder injuries respectively.

Meanwhile, the emergency services attended a crash on the A1065 involving two lorries and a car.

One person was taken to hospital following the 4pm accident between Brandon and Lakenheath yesterday.

The crashes happened just days after two separate accidents on the A140 left three people fighting for their lives in hospital.

Tony Slattery, 17, from Basildon, Essex, was involved in a head-on collision between a Ford Granada car and a horsebox at Stoke Ash, near Eye, on Wednesday. He remains in a critical condition in Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge.

Tony Cassidy, 47, of Norwich, was also seriously injured in the accident. He is being treated at Ipswich Hospital.

Nurse Kathy Sparkes, 36, from Wyverstone, near Stowmarket, who was involved in an accident in the village on March 7, continues to make a slow recovery at Ipswich Hospital.

The mother-of-three was transferred to Ipswich Hospital from Addenbrooke's, where she arrived last week in a critical condition after her car had been in a collision with a lorry.
